Between what you've seen and what Fuse has access to via the cameras, you review the club as you know it.

It is almost nightfall--the club will be opening pretty soon. Macland is not likely to show up until after midnight.

I propose we eat dinner and talk about what we're going to do next, while keep half an eye out with our rat(s).

I have a kind of dumb idea about sending in Jane dressed up provocatively and walking out of the restroom as though she has always been in the club, and sneaking her way into the VIP room from there like she's one of Mac's 'action' girls. But I feel like that could backfire in a thousand ways so also really iffy about this XD; (Though Fuse could hide in the vents the entire time and fry anyone who potentially tries to hurt us... that could also literally blow up in our faces so maybe not.)

Another idea is to go by it slowly and infiltrate using the rat spies as our scouts and going from the security office, after raiding the supplies from the locker. (Tasers sound really darn helpful.) The VIP room has to be in the basement somewhere.

We need to somehow manipulate the feed the whole time to *not* show us on the monitors when we're passing by, too...

We musn't forget the lockpickable armory in the security office, as well as the computer there. Perhaps Fuse might be able to get more done with direct access, rather than just a USB made for a single task. And more guns would surely help, especially when out of reach of the bad guys' guards.

Also, before I go to bed, I started a store on RedBubble. Not much there yet, but I'll be trying to add more T-shirt designs over the next week or so.

Ahhhh cute t-shirts!! :D Of course the classic shirt would be red XD

I'll wait for ya to add s'more designs, 'cause shipping costs a bomb where I'm at and it'll be better to pack it all in one go. -v-)/

Nice job so far. Even got a valid motive, although it's not like any judge would help us. I bet they're privatised as well.

From Fuse's comment back in #220, the guards are tubeguys, probably with loads of mods only rich folks can afford. No winning any direct confrontation against both of those.
Better switch to guerilla tactics.

What happens if a fire starts in the bar ? With all the booze, they'll probably evacuate the ground floor. The VIP rooms are a big unknown though. They might double as panic rooms or bunkers and triggering the fire alarm could lock them down.
And then we end up with a beefy bodyguard to deal with, and no easy way to get Michelle in there.

I don't really want to sacrifice the rats for diversion's sake either. Ehh, I'm running low on safe ideas, and everything else is a catastrophe waiting to happen.

We should probably stash the USB stick in some isolated nook of the vents, if we can. No point in carrying it around now that its job is done, and it would be a bad scene if our rat were found with the USB stick still on it. We might want to doff the bandages too unless we have a specific need for them, though that would really reduce our ability to manipulate things on the fly.

Can we leave the rat in the vents for now and trust it not to go wandering off if we divert our attention from it? Maybe suggest to it to go to sleep, then wake it up when we arrive closer to midnight?
